Consider this the Presidential Primary post. The Trumpster wowed 'em in Madison yesterday while Cruz paid homage to all things catfish and the giant cross in Florence. Kasich be-bopped through here last week although he met with "The Party" instead of the voters. Can't trust the folks with pitchforks, you know. We got to see Bill himself grace us with his presence as Fondrenites oohed and ahhed. Bernie? Who dat be? Bernie didn't even visit the state. Oh well. Here is a round up of the primary news:
Governor Bryant endorsed Ted Cruz yesterday. The Cruz campaign issued this statement:
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant Endorses Ted Cruz for President
Today, the Cruz for President campaign announced the endorsement of Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. This comes on the heels of Cruz acquiring the highest number of delegates on Super Saturday.
“It’s time for Republicans to join together and unite the party for the good of our state and our nation,” said Gov. Bryant. “I urge my fellow Mississippians to join me in standing behind Ted Cruz tomorrow.”
“I am honored to have the support of Governor Bryant who is committed to uniting conservatives across his state and the nation behind my campaign," said Cruz. "The people of Mississippi are fed up with they dysfunction in Washington and know this is the time for courageous conservatives to unite.”
Phil Bryant was sworn in for his second term as Mississippi’s 64th governor on January 12, 2016, after being elected with 67% of the vote.
Kasich visited Mississippi last week:
Then there was Trump. They packed the house at Madison-Central High School yesterday and another seven thousand watched Trump give his speech on the scoreboard's video screen.
Here is a video of the former President visiting Cups in Fondren:
Kingfish note: The last five days have shown why Mississippi should not be a part of Super Tuesday. The state got its own day in the Presidential sun.
